What kind of process timeline is needed to ensure key decision makers are involved early on for the purposes of budgeting and staff buy-in?

2. Who are the key stakeholders impacted in this scenario? Using the attached power versus interest grid, how does one influence the other?

3. In terms of internal and external threats, where should the planning committee place its focus in devising an effective strategic plan?

4. What are the strategic issues? What are the operational issues? How are they different from each other?

5. What recommendations are necessary in making sure funds are used wisely? Where can funds be obtained from?

6. Why do you believe the above suggestions must be taken into consideration for the good of the organization? How would you conduct an effective evaluation of the new plan?
